I was talking to my brother about how this will probably do less than 12 seconds to the quarter mile when this nice gentlemen came up to us and said its a WIP and that they hadn't yet pushed it to its limits. Even then the car was doing 13 seconds. The rear section of the car had been completely taken out and had spaceframe built to his specifications. Although he was using the octavia's original block , the head, air intakes, turbos, exhaust, engine maps, pretty much everything was made from scratch. Power output as per his estimations were 350Bhp at the wheels!.

This is by far the most impressive thing I have ever seen! Unfortunately for me, the car wasn't going to run that day!

I spent the rest of the day trackside.

My only regret is that I couldn't go on all 3 days of the event. If this event ever comes back to Kolkata again, I will definitely visit.
Hey Scederiamania, the car was built by us back in Bangalore and is far from complete. We've spent the last 3 drag events just shaking down the car and improving dynamics - since there isn't a road where we can legally test this car. Unfortunately, at this event, the rear subframe took a bit of an impact while being unloaded from the truck which in turn damaged the engine mounts. Nevertheless, we sorted it out and completed our run on Sunday.

We're still on low boost ~17psi putting out 340Hp at the wheels on the dyno. Lots more to come, hope you get to see her run at the next event!

I am eager to receive updates about the car. Have you documented the car on any thread in team-bhp?
Also, was the guy I talked a member of your team?

It was surely a trip to remember. From the major low points in the start to the major highs towards the end. #indiaspeedweek will be one of the toughest events to execute but it was worth all the hard work as it turned out to be one of the biggest in every aspect.
Looking forward to announce the next one with some major improvements
